    I have been working at MacArthur Foundation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely one of the most passionate group of people who here. I was a temp for 5 months with the International Peace and Security and Conservation group. As a fresh graduate, I was in complete awe of all the staff's incredible knowledge and care for one another.

    Cons

    - They don't really hire as often as some others would like considering there is a need to have additional staff and some temps stay there for years before they are full time. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the upper management, please open up new positions that are needed for your staff! They do want permanent help and for people like myself, who were so eager to work for your company, this would would be a wonderful opportunity!
    I love the MacArthur Foundation!
